Anna Alexander is a first year student at Washington and Lee University. She previously served as a member of the Aesthesia literary magazine at The Miami Valley School in Dayton, Ohio. Although Anna is not someone that most people would consider conventionally “fashionable,” her interest in non-event-based history fosters a keen curiosity in global history and fashion. In particular, Anna looks forward to being able to contribute insights into the relationship between female fashion and historical gender roles, as well as the correlation between the use of different dyes and textiles based on class divides.
